    X fusion suspension help please

    I just picked up a leftover 2012 specialized status 1 with the x fusion vengeance fork and x fusion vector r rear shock. I'm 5'11" and weigh 205 lbs. I know how to change the rear spring because I can already tell I need it and I figured the forks would be no prob. But as I rode t around just in front of the house today and played with it I could bottom out the fork just bouncing hard on it! What's going to happen when I start to take flight with it when our bike park opens in two weeks? Do I need to get beefier springs in the fork or what? Any input is much appreciated.

    Pretty sure the stock (green?) spring is for 150-180 lbs. Probably need to get the next firmer spring.
